With the temperatures currently plummeting and snow sweeping its way across the country, Karolina Szymkiewicz‘s gorgeous piece couldn’t have come at a more fitting time.
Says Karolina: “This year I’ve decided Christmas is about snuggling up under a blanket with someone you like and keeping warm with help of a hot beverage – whether it’s tea, fancy coffee, or creamy hot chocolate or possibly even a cheeky cup of mulled wine. During a cold winter day a big mug of a hot drink takes up a whole new dimension and becomes an utterly divine experience! Best shared with someone you hold special – one may make use of a boyfriend, a girlfriend, a friend, any member of your family, a brother, a sister, a cat, a dog or a even a hot water bottle (mine is called Jerome so it has a VIP status!) Apart from that I see Christmas as slightly corny and wonderfully sentimental hence the playful style of illustration.”
